Scripts and Videos in the Library

Usually, finding a play is easy! Follow these steps:

  1. Open the library catalog.
  2. In the search box, type the title of the play and the author's last name.
  3.  Limit the format to Books (to find scripts) or Videos.
  4. Find a catalog record for the play you need.
  5. Use the call number to find it on the shelf.

Occasionally, plays are harder to find. If you can't find a particular script, it may be "hiding" in an anthology. Your friendly librarians know the tricks for finding these—just ask one of us and we'll be happy to help!
